Pro-tip: If you’re going to be flying a big ass plane between some big ass buildings, maybe give the people in those buildings a heads up.
Why? Well, because there were a lot of people who lost their shit after a C-17 military plane flew scarily close to some of the tallest buildings in downtown Nashville yesterday afternoon.

There didn’t seem to be any advanced notice that this plane was going to be buzzing buildings downtown.
Naturally, people panicked.

One reasonable guess was that these were just some kind of new aero tavern taking woo-girls around the city for their bachelorette party. (You know it’s coming sooner or later).
The mystery was finally solved when it was reported that the plane was doing a practice run for tomorrow’s gubernatorial inauguration.
Not a great way to start your administration, by making everybody think they’re going to die.
